    Right To Your Own Emotions

    I have tried to show my emotions and have been basically told my feelings do not matter. So if they dont matter to anyone why show them. I would rather lock them up and not have to face them. This way I can't get hurt. The only time my feeling matter is when they are about...

    I can't express my emotions

    because I get too anxious, and my friends don't wait between pauses long enough for me to gather myself, yet I listen to them talk about their issues for hours on a regular basis. I don't want their pity-- I want them to think I'm strong, and it works, and they think I'm fine.

    I don't always hide my emotions.

    But sometimes, I have no other choice. My family can't know how I feel or what I'm thinking. They would make it so much worse. And yet, I have to sit right here in front of them, I don't have a choice in that either. So I've learned how to put on a mask that almost no one can...

    I hide my emotions particularly well. A form of stoicism. If I don't show it, I don't feel it, right? It has become my defense mechinism. Few people can break down my walls. Few people know the real me. I'm not saying I sit there silently with a look of boredom on my face 24/7...

    I hide how I truly feel

    so people won't judge me or look at me any different. I put on this fake show, were I'm all happy, smiles, but really I just want to hide. I try to over come my anxiety but its really hard. I don't want it to control my life anymore. I'm going to fight it.

    The Way I Live:

    I sit here, working on programs, hacking, for what? Personal gain? Power? Respect? Authority? Fame? None of the above, I sit here to prove to myself that I'm good at atleast one thing- Something that will actually benefit me later in life, as my thoughts are, everything is run...
